Gift Guide: gifts for her
I love hunting for the perfect present, something that surprises and delights that special someone! I especially love giving a gift that is unique and different. Each year it seems to get a little harder to find things that I have never seen before…but when I do, it is definitely exciting. Don’t get me wrong… all of the magazines have some great ideas in their holiday gift guides, but for me some of the best presents are those that come from small boutiques and undiscovered, or up and coming designers! Here are a few of my favorite boutique finds this season.
The Melange Collection by Molly M
In the Melange collection, Molly continues to experiment with new materials – exploring the potential of lasercut leather and metal. The jewelry is a mixture of existing designs made with new materials, and playful combinations of triangles and tabs – largely inspired by designs and techniques used in North and West African jewelry. The jewelry is made with metallic leathers, gold plated brass and rhodium plated stainless steel, and soft coral and mint waxed linen – a shimmery and luxe palette.
Clutch by Shawn Burke
The ultimate in luxurious simplicity. This small zip pouch is handmade in the softest suede and can be used as super a chic clutch or used for personal effects inside your bag .
Claridge & King Zipper Sweater
Don’t you think every woman needs a black cashmere sweater in her wardrobe? We do. Banishing the banal we took a great basic: the shallow V-neck style sweater and gave it some zip—literally.
